It was dropped from knee high. But i know hds are very sensitive so i thought it was broken but we are able to watch some movies with it. (it was lost season 2 e15,e16,e17) I thought i was lucky. But this morning it makes the repeating familiar noise(the death of a hd) after i wrote some files. It was good so far to the last file's last bit. Then when i want to read the new files. The bad noise again! I wonder if i never use it for writing and use it for just reading will it be ok? I mean just for reading like a lock or read only something. I wonder if reading will cause more damage to undamaged regions?. It was so new i hadn't have the chance to pay it. The hd in it is(was) a samsung 400 gb. ps- I am asking this because it's 80% full. If i can never write something again it's ok. No problem. It can serve me for just reading from now on and i will be happy... I don't want to ask but if i have no chance how can i save the data?
